Rooting Echinacea Plants
I've read so many posts from people wanting to root some of the newer Echinacea plants. I have found out how to do it!
I searched on the web for how to root plants. I ended up in a marijuana growers' forum! LOL. Believe it or not, they had the most detailed instructions. I figured if it would work with those plants it would work with coneflowers...and it did.
They use Clonex gel. This is a must I have found. It really works! I found instructions on how to make a propagator from clear plastic totes and an aquarium air pump. I did what they said and put a florescent light over the top and waited. The cuttings rooted within a week. I actually grew some indoors over the winter that I rooted from cuttings. They lived all winter in my kitchen window. I then was able to take cuttings from them as well.
You can learn a lot from those illegal growers! LOL!
